I was at NTB having my tires (purchased there) rotated and my alignment checked (3-yr warranty from them), when they said "Your car still has its original shocks and after 80K miles they really should be replaced."

Now I'm one of those people who don't know a whole lot about cars and could probably easily fall into a situation where my shocks aren't that good but that I wouldn't notice. But is is true that age would determine the need for replacement?

Patient in question: 2006 Saab 2.0T 9-3

Saab's never said a word about this when I've gone in for service, but my last visit there was about a year ago.
